A YOUTH computer cafe has been officially launched in Somerset.
Enterprising youngsters opened the doors of Wedmore eSports Café, at the George Hotel in Church Street, on Thursday.
The guests, including youth workers and more than 25 youngsters from the village, gathered to find out about the group while enjoying wine and nibbles.
The café is the brainchild of friends Alex Cook and Paul Foster, both aged 18. It was set up to provide a safe environment for youngsters in Wedmore to meet up, chat, play on computers, use the internet and do homework.

Alex said: “The launch was great and everyone had a really good time. Hopefully, the launch has encouraged more people to join.
“There seems to be quite a few lads at the moment and we had some suggestions of how to get more female members, such as getting dance mats for the computers and karaoke games.”
